Out of nowhere Monday afternoon, a brief update about the massive parking garage currently under construction at Dallas Love Field turned into breaking news about a possible "people mover" connecting the airport with at least one Dallas Area Rapid Transit light-rail station.
Mark Duebner, head of Dallas' Aviation Department, mentioned it in passing to the Dallas City Council's Budget, Finance and Audit Committee when asked, as he often is, about the possibility of one day bringing light rail to Love.
Runway 18-36 near Denton Drive, which was closed in 2011 as part of the Love Field Modernization Program, will be eliminated in January. The former crosswind runway will reconfigured as a taxiway once it's finally taken off line early next year.
And when that happens, Duebner said, "it allows us greater flexibility for what we can do on the north end of the airport."
